Steal your Face
Good to see He's Gone in the 1st set.
I guess the tune became so big the opening set couldn't hold it anymore.
It would have been interesting to see this in the 1st set closer spot.
He's Gone really benefits from its placement here, no pressure to take it anywhere and the jam is pretty wide open...
I remember seeing a show somewhere in the late 80's with he's Gone opening the 2nd set. Or maybe it was just my imagination? Might have been R.F.K.
Anyway, the Dead sound different here not Europe 72 without Pigpen and not fully integrated with this line-up that would just kill it in 1973 behind the Wall of Sound.
Not big on the drop-outs but thankful to give this a listen. probably like a 4 for me all around but i am sure if I had been at this show it would have been over the top.
As already mentioned Dark Star >Stella. I really do find it to be a different groove in the Dark Star!
I dig the Tomorrow is Forever in the closing ballad slot.

I just came across This show and can without a doubt say that this is one of the greatest, most mind altering Dark Star ever played.
Every now and then, actually fairly often, you come across a Dead song that makes your heart skip a beat and quiver in your chest. And this Dark Star is one of them.
My buddy downloaded Fire on the Mountain onto his phone and it just so happened to be one of those life-changing versions. Ive never been able to find that file anywhere else on the internet and I've searched and searched for it. Nothing.

40 years ago tonight, It seems like all this life was just a dream . . .
A good board with audience patches, from a great venue, and what a year '72 was ! Fantastic shows throughout Europe, an epic July in Dillon, August in Veneta, and now, back home to Winterland. They would return here again NYE in just a few weeks, but this is the second of a three night triumphant return home, and boy do they nail it. Just check out great versions of really the whole setlist. Honestly, I love Loser & He's Gone, but in the 2nd set Dark Star > Stella are other-worldly as well !
Love the great ballroom sound, and even though according to Bobby, "Pigpen is convalasing from multiple, and serious illnesses, and he will probably be back with us after the first of the year" the band play amazing. Nothing stopping the train this night ! GD'72 @ Winterland ? 5*****
In the end there's just a song . . .

1/2-Step Good, Dark Star way beyond Great
Is this the best Dark Star ever? I think it might be, and what a great matrix to listen to it !!
